About Edward


Bio

From Parents of Student -
Our experience with Ed W. was exceptional. Our son had significant writing challenges that ranged from simple mechanics and spelling to more complex sentence structure needs. Through Ed’s approach and assistance, our son has significantly improved his capacity as a writer.
We still have work to do, and Ed will be a part of that future. By spending time with our son, Ed created a customized approach and strategy to help achieve the basics and the more complex needs...

From Parents of Student -
Our experience with Ed W. was exceptional. Our son had significant writing challenges that ranged from simple mechanics and spelling to more complex sentence structure needs. Through Ed’s approach and assistance, our son has significantly improved his capacity as a writer.
We still have work to do, and Ed will be a part of that future. By spending time with our son, Ed created a customized approach and strategy to help achieve the basics and the more complex needs of writing. Ed always came prepared and ready to teach. Timothy looked forward to his time with Ed and felt that Ed truly understood how to teach him so he would learn the material. Ed had a way of relating to Timothy by using his personal interests and incorporating these into the lesson. Ed would follow up each session with a detailed critique of the session, and plans for future meetings.
We have been very pleased with his teaching techniques and his flexibility to modify the content to fill the specific needs we have. We think Ed is fantastic in his ability to help children become better writers. We would welcome further discussion about Ed and his teaching skills, as he is a fine educator whom we feel very lucky to have taught, and continue to teach our son.

I assisted a sixth grade student with writing and study skills for six months through WyzAnt. The student had significant organizational problems that hampered his ability to keep up with his work. I assisted him in creating an organized binder that helped him quite a bit. I also taught him how to study passages from his book and combine the important points them with his class notes. I also helped motivate the student to study by giving him positive reinforcement and holding him accountable for completing his homework.

Basketball

I particularly can help your shooting and defense. After being selected all-state at Weymouth High School in Massachusetts, I started at No. 2 guard for Dartmouth College where I played against players such as Basketball Hall of Famer Dr. J (Julius Erving)from UMass, former NBA Rookie-of-the-Year Geoff Petrie from Princeton, and former LA Lakers starter Jim McMillian from Columbia. I have coached in a number of summer camps and also a middle school boys team from the Torah Day School of Dallas for two years. I can help you with rotation on your shot, squaring yourself to the basket when shooting, and how to get free for an open shot using backdoor moves and screens. Defensively, I can especially help with footwork, fighting over picks and switching, guarding the baseline, and taking the charge.

Very knowledgeable and dedicated to motivating reluctant learners

We are happy with Mr. W.'s approach to teaching. He has a broad knowledge base and uses that to engage our reluctant learners. He is a very experienced teacher and is helping our kids get back on track with language arts and history.
